The physicians and staff at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute (IBJI) are passionate about helping athletes all over Chicagoland move better and live better. To demonstrate that commitment, IBJI is partnering with the Chicago Tribune on the “TribLocal High School Athlete of the Month” program, which highlights the achievements of young athletes and benefits local schools.
IBJI’s Dr. Marc Breslow was interviewed recently on WGN-720 Radio by host Pete McMurray, along with star student athlete Giovanni Taibi of Notre Dame College Prep, who was named TribLocal High School Athlete of the Month for March. Dr. Breslow, an orthopedic surgeon of IBJI-Morton Grove, serves as the orthopedic team physician forTaibi’s football team. During his radio interview, Dr. Breslow talked about his responsibilities as team physician and how he partners with the school’s athletic trainers to keep Notre Dame football players healthy and injury-free.
IBJI is donating $500 to Notre Dame’s athletic department in recognition of Taibi’s achievement. IBJI will continue its sponsorship of the TribLocal Reader’s High School Athlete of the Month program throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
